[platform-ui-dev] Why doesn't ProblemMarker implement IMarker?

Hi UI Team,

I have a plugin which assigns a popup action to problem IMarkers. This
worked fine in Eclipse 2.1.x but in Eclipse 3.0, as you know, the problems
view has been separated from the tasks view. In doing so a ProblemMarker
class was created which extends the ConcreteMarker class. Neither of these
classes implement IMarker. A couple questions.

1. Why don't either of these classes implement IMarker? Was this a design
decision or is this an accidental omission?

2. If these classes can't implement IMarker (for whatever reason) can a
public interface be created so I don't have to register my popup action
against an internal class?
